Fortuna Pond BLM Area

"Fortuna Pond Camping & Fishing Site is located outside Yuma, AZ and is popular area among the locals. The camping area is situated around the small, Fortuna Pond. The pond is stocked by the Arizona Game & Fish with a variety of fish. The area receives heavy use, especially on the weekends. It is open on the north side and surrounded by Tamarisk trees on the other. The ground near the lake is a hard packed sand and dirt mixture. The further you get from the lake or road, the softer it becomes. Not much in the way of amenities, the trash dumpster is appreciated as I’m sure is the outhouse for those tenting.

Take hwy 95 east from Yuma. Turn north (left) on South Avenue 7E/Laguna Dam Road (there is a brown sign on hwy 95 for Mittry Lake right before this turn). Go 1.5 miles. Turn right (east) onto E County 7 1/2 St (it’s directly after the canal). The canal should now be on your right. This road was a flat, graded, and hard packed dirt road. As you travel on this road, for 3.2 miles, the scene will largely remain the same: canal and farmland on your right, riparian wilderness on your left. The lake will be on your left, if you miss the first entrance, don’t worry, there’s another one in 3/10th of a mile."
